Lucky Me, I need a stator and r/r

Hi everyone, I've been stalking this site for awhile now. I have learned a lot. My 94 Vulcan is finally in need of a stator and r/r. I think i'm going with the TPE stator and switching to a MOSFET regulator. Like most everybody funds are very limited so I want to do this as cheap as possible. I've read various posts on here about doing the switch, i'm pretty confident in my mechanical ability to basically pull the engine. However my electrical ability is mediocre at best. If I buy a FH010BA r/r do I need a wiring kit also or can I piece it back together using the old wiring? I relocated my r/r to under the left side cover. Can I do the MOSFET cheaper than a stock type? I don't want to do this more than once, I just want my bike to be reliable and not be afraid of it dyeing again. Any and all help with this job will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Cliff

I would suggest getting the full install kit for the MOSFET. Takes any guesswork out of it.

There is a wire you need to splice from your existing harness (for headlight relay). There are posts about that that you'll be able to find easily with pics/etc

OK, I kinda figured getting the wiring kit would be easiest. Is this example all I need as far as wiring or is there more to it than this?


I know of the yellow headlight wire. What else do I need? Is there any gaskets, seals, or hardware that is needed for the stator change? I'm getting my stator rebuilt by TPE. Thank you thtanner for your reply.

Not sure, but think it didn't show because he included a link:

FH012AA Regulator Rectifier FH020AA 2 Year Warranty Brand New | eBay


Guess you need to have so many posts to do so?

Funny, just last night I was looking at the RR thinking dang these have gotten cheap.

Regulator Rectifier Fits Kawasaki VN700 VN750 VN1500 Vulcan | eBay

If he is on a budget I wouldn't spend 8 times as much just to go mosfet. My bike runs great stock. /Stubborn.

Sorry for not replying sooner, my computer developed issues. I got the stator removed, that wasn't fun. I sent it to TPE and ordered a new mosfet r/r off of ebay. Just waiting for everything to get delivered so I can try and put it back together again. I did end up removing the rear tire and shaft to give the engine more wiggle room. I really wish I had the money to do the ear shave at this point. Thanks for all the valuable info this site offers.

Does anyone have a phone number for TPE? I mailed him my stator on 7/21 and have emailed him a couple of times as to whether or not he received it and still no response. I emailed him prior to tearing my bike apart and had a response the next day about price and mailing info. I am beginning to think that maybe I should of bough an OEM one from a dealer. His website is down for a redesign or is he going out of business. Please help me. Thanks

He didn't go anywhere but turn-around was closer to 2 weeks for me.
